Terror Attempt at JFK

After the thwarted plot to attack JFK airport, I almost wrote a sarcastic post about how the U.S. presence in Iraq caused it. But I decided that would be inappropriate to joke about. However, U.S. Representative John Murtha not only thinks it's appropriate, he thinks it's true:
Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., says homegrown terrorist plots like the alleged plan to bomb fuel pipelines at John F. Kennedy International Airport are provoked by the U.S. presence in Iraq.
So let me get this straight - our presence in Iraq is causing radical Muslims from Trinidad & Guyana to try to attack us? I don't know how some of these politicians refuse to identify radical Islam as a real threat to us, yet they make claims like this.
